the photos apple provides make it seem so dark, but a youtube video i recently saw makes it seem much more vivid/bright.. I've been trying to get something similar to the royal blue but wasn't lucky enough to get that color since apple discontinued it.. anybody have the new cobalt? provide pics?

thanks!

I don't have photos. But I saw it in the apple store and tried it on with my gold aluminium watch (the gold from last year, not this years). I found it to be definitely brighter than midnight blue and it brought out the gold way more than the midnight blue does. I think it's a really great colour. Don't think it's as bright as royal blue though. The purple was next to it and that was super bright. this is kind of in between the purple and midnight - where its noticeable without being flashy. Hope this helps.

I have the Ocean Blue and I would say it's very close to that blue. Maybe a shade brighter... maybe... It could just be because my Ocean is a little dirty from wear.

It is not midnight blue and not Royal blue.

I have the ocean blue as well, only got it as an exchange cause midnight blue was too dark. Thanks for your input!

Just picked up the colbolt blue tonight. Took a few comparison photos: in 2nd photo, it’s second from left.
Wow it looks pretty dark in that 2nd photo! I need to pay a visit to the Apple store soon to see it in person lol. They really need to bring back the royal though

Hop on over to the iPhone accessories forum. Someone had pics of leather iPhone case & watchband in cobalt. I’ll try to find it.

Edit - Found it.

It’s in the order I listed, from left to right. Royal Blue is lighter then the other two
Thanks! Surprised as to me royal blue means a very dark rich blue. Not sure which of the first two is my favorite but I like them!

See for yourself



I would buy it immediately if I had a white ceramic, but I have a SB and I don’t like the coloured bands with it, currently have a Ocean Blue SB just lying around because of this
